AG Punjab not to defend Shahbaz Sharif: SC


Express April 26, 2010

ISLAMABAD:

The Supreme Court (SC) barred Advocate General Punjab, Khwaja Harris from representing Shahbaz Sharif in an eligibility case on Monday.


A 3 member bench headed by Justice Nasir-ul-Malik heard the case.


Khwaja Harris was told that the case was against an individual and not the government. Hence he could not represent Sharif in court.


The court has given Shahbaz Sharif time to appoint a new lawyer and has adjourned the hearings for an indefinite period.

Shahzad Khan | 10 years ago | Reply Mr. Shahbaz is the CM of Punjab for more than 2 yaers & his eligibilty is still not decided & our (so called) Independent Judiciary is lingering it on & on. Is this impartiality?
cheema | 10 years ago | Reply And SC did not see this "lawfulness" till now. Oh i forgot, it independent judiciary NOT Nawaz judiciary.
